Deutsche Welle (via Issoudun)

Deutsche Welle via Issoudun, France was logged on 6 March 2019. An Amharic broadcast of news, current event reports pertaining to Africa and Horn of Africa music was monitored from 16.00 till 16.45 UTC (broadcast time 16.00 till 17.00 UTC). Reception on the short-wave frequency of 11.995 kHz was SINPO 45444 -- fair to good signal strength, clear and audible content, despite some fluttering atmospheric noise. HERE is DW (Issoudun).

Reception report was emailed on the following day, then a subsequent follow-up to a different email address was sent four months later in July 2019. QSL card arrived in the mail on 29 August 2019.

  1. Hello Tim! I have recently started following your blog and requesting QSL's and I would like to ask you a question if you don't mind. What amount of time do you consider usually as reasonable to send a reminder or follow-up email?

    Thanks a lot and congratulations on your blog, it's really interesting and helpful!


  2. Thank you for your asking. I usually give the station four months or more. In some cases I send a report by mail as well as email. On a few occasions I have faxed or FB messaged. 73.
